I should stay in but I want to walk in the snow!

Did you see the picture of Mom's daffodil's I posted last week? It's certainly not spring in Minneapolis on this first day of March!


I've been busy finishing up a quilt for Mom. I didn't line up one of my rows right and had to pick out stitches AGAIN! I've had to frog some on my last 3 quilts - hopefully I'm done with that now since trouble usually comes in 3's. Yes, I did use the Baptist Fans again but Mom has wanted one of her quilts done with the fans since I got the template. Since it was already on the table from my last quilt - I brought home her baskets with me from my trip to her house and went ahead and quilted that one first.

I hate to tell you but I will anyways! LOL! It is in the upper 70's and gorgeous today! Although I love the sunshine, I miss the snow!

It has been snowing here for a solid week. It is incredibly beautiful, not too cold and great quilting weather! I love it. But I will be glad to see spring when it finally arrives.

Beautiful quilt ... those fans really turn out well, don't they! Will definitely need to do that design on one of my quilts.

Great Job! I love to walk in the snow too. Today all we had is rain.

The daffodil's are beautiful. Fan quilting is perfect for this one. Walking in the snow is so nice. Just smelling the snow and look at the snowflakes falling down.

I love your Mom's quilt! Once again the fans do not fail! You have perfect lighting in your studio to take quilt pictures by the way. The pictures you show us show the quilting perfectly!

You were FIRST on Bloglines that I wanted to check out this AM -- I just KNEW you would have some actual photos of that snowstorm! It missed us completely in Western Nebraska. And that walking in the snow -- how lovely - most of the time everyone gets in such a hurry to clear it away.

Your Mom's daffodil quilt is just lovely! And the fans make it even better. Thanks for all the posting.

Oh, Mary it's beautiful. The fans are perfect for that quilt. In my opinion you could those fans on everythings - I love them. LOL

Looking out your window is like looking into a snowglobe! I miss days like those - watching the snowfall and the peacefulness of the day. I'm on the surface of the sun and sometimes I get sick of the sun! LOL

We are finally getting some warmer weather. Your snow is pretty, but I hope we don't get any more.

Your Mom's quilt is really pretty. The fans are just what it needs.

Hugs

I really like this quilt. It's charming and vintage looking. I am hooked on quilting fans on my quilts. I just hand quilt mine because I don't have a long arm. My mom quilted all her quilts with fans also.
